Here are 4 science-backed reasons why sleep is vital for healthy skin:1: Recovery mode is activated
When we sleep, our body goes into a state of intense repair and regeneration at a rate 3x faster than during the day.
2. Melatonin increases cell repair
Melatonin is a sleep hormone that is released a few hours before bedtime, enhancing the feeling of tiredness as well as increasing our skin’s ability to repair itself at night.
3, HGH speeds up cell recovery
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is also released to accelerate skin’s repair and cell regeneration during sleep.
4. Body heat = skin absorption
When we sleep our body temperature rises, making the skin more permeable and receptive to absorbing properties.
